Hot and Cold: Learn About Plumbing Services Serving Ogden, UT

When you sit back and relax in the comfort and coolness of your home, do you ever think about the history of your air conditioner? We didn’t think so. Fortunately, we’ve done it for you. Air conditioners and heating systems have a unique history that every homeowner should know about.

Although air conditioners date back to the 2nd century, the first modern air conditioner was developed in 1902 for a publishing house to protect papers.
